As many of you know, in July, 2017, our good friend Tim Wilson suffered a massive stroke.   After several surgeries he was admitted to a Neurological rehab facility in Austin.   In May 2018, Tim and Cathy were informed by their medical insurance company that benefits would be ceased due to lack of medical progress.  Accordingly, Tim became classified as a private pay patient whereby Cathy  must pay the entire monthly fees approximating $7,000.  Cathy retained a senior care legal expert to assist in navigating these changes which should be complete in September.   

Tim recently had a new shunt inserted in his head to drain off excess fluid.  (the old shunt had malfunctioned without anyone's knowledge).
Almost miraculously, Tim improved markedly.  Although still suffering the ravages of the stroke, his speech is clearer, he recognizes many people, and he has a sense of humor.  So, family and friends are hopeful that therapy will result in further progress.

Several close friends have already pitched in to help financially with the legal fees and monthly private pay cost.   Many, many more have asked how they can help which is why this go fund me campaign has been set up by friends.  Any amount of assistance would be greatly appreciated and is very much needed.  Cathy and Tim would be the last to ask for financial assistance but  would be the first to provide help.

Tim was unable to attend Zach's wedding last Fall, nor could he attend his Mother's funeral this summer. 

Thanks for any help you can provide and pray for the Wilson family.

Update from Cathy Wilson
************************************************
Dearest Family and Friends,
You have been in my heart and thoughts. I’ve wanted to send the sincerest thank you to each and every one of you, yet no words adequately convey how much your support and generous gifts have lifted our spirits and eased our financial burdens. May your lives be blessed in the overwhelming way you have blessed ours.
Tim is residing at the West Oaks Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center at 3200 W. Slaughter Lane in room 409. He is medically stable but immobile and continuing to receive therapy with limited results. He may not remember what he ate for breakfast or what the day is, but he clearly remembers his family, friends and details from his past and he’s looking forward to being a grandpa in January. Tim's limitless good nature, positive attitude and sense of humor are still evident, though his formerly boundless energy needs more recharging.
If you’re in his area, feel free to drop by his room or dining table. Tim has always counted his friends and family as his biggest joy in life. I share that conviction. Any future good deeds by me will be “paid forward" in honor of all the love and support you have shared with our family.

With much love, thanks and appreciation,
Cathy Wilson

Dear friends, Tim and I are overwhelmed with your generosity, support, and love. You’ve made a difficult situation much more bearable. Today, Tim & I celebrate our 39th Anniversary. Your friendship truly supports us at this time, as it has all of our marriage. We are lucky to have you in our lives. We thank you so much. Words alone just don’t seem enough, but I would like to thank each one of you individually for everything you’ve done to help us. You have blessed us immeasurably.
CATHY n Timbo, u r deeply loved!
